passed a comprehensive energy plan off the floor of this house. protected social security, advanced so many other issues. a in my opinion, tip o'neill was the elder -- was the albert einstein of politics. he knew what it took in order to make this institution work. he knew what it took to reach across the aisle, to find people of good will, to make this chamber work and to advance the agenda for this country. so for for me, it's a great honor to be here because buildings, as we name them, also embody that person. it is my hope that as people walk in and out of this building for the 21st century, that they think about who tip o'neill was. they think about, yes, how much he loved political war, but at the same time he brought his own personal warmth to that, that it was not separated here on the house floor. it is my hope in naming this building perhaps this process this great institution, can be an nated by his great legacy and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from california reserves his time. >> mr. speaker, i reser

in the act of rowling his army at cedar creek. green with age, a statute conveys sheridan's electric energy. lincoln and more secretary ever stand had thought of the 33 year-old sheridan too young when grant proposed in july 1864 that he command the new army of the shenandoah. sheridan's size contributed to the impression of youth that he projected. he was just 5'5" and only 115 pounds in 1864. but as grant memorably replied to one officer commented on sheridan's diminutive stature, i think you'll find him plenty big enough for the job. just before sheridan's appointment, confederate general early and 14,000 troops have marched down the shenandoah valley, across the potomac at threatened washington, the tremendous shock, the capital was thrown into a panic, grant rushed troops to the city from his army outside petersburg, and early withdrew. to prevent a recurrence, the lincoln administration merged for military departments into a new one, with sheridan in charge of it. he was ordered to pursue jubal early's army to the death, and to destroy the shenandoah valley's grains, produce and lives

cannot refocus and marshaled the energy and priorities of our country to get ahead, so we brought a speaker who is extraordinarily influential and a true inspiration. there is a quotation that says, when it comes to the future there are three types of people. there are those who let it happen. there are those who make it happen and those who wonder what happens. our speaker tonight makes it happen. he is a businessman. he is an attorney. he is a bit of an entrepreneur. that makes him a remarkable. i think what makes an extraordinary is he is a true leader. he was on the d.c. city council and helped start their voucher program. he wrote a book called voices of determination. it is essentially a testament to how kids can be a testament to adults and overcome great aunts and are true inspiration's region a testament to adults about kids. he advises mayors, congressman all across the country on issues of large. he is in the thick of the game and a complete leader on the issue, and you feel his influence across the country. and we are very fortunate to who areple like thehim savvy plea
of the networks is he just announced the tax tomorrow and not have broken his word on the energy tax rate in the middle class they could raise income taxes on people a year from now which is why what he wanted to do is kick out the tax rates for people that are less than 250 for a year. he can't get -- and this is where you talk about the dual mandate. we are talking about marginal tax rates on higher income people and successful small businesses. that raises 400 billion on the taxes in addition to the rate increases that he wants to include. another 400 billion over a decade. as we have over 800 billion that he plans to raise for the higher income people if he gets that tax hike he raises 8 trillion in debt over the next decade. so how we solve less than 10% of the problem. he then comes back and says who is going to pay the 8 trillion. that's the energy tax which of course. people have been trying to subpoena this information they don't want to share with anyone because it's relevant. carbon atom carbon copies when they send these e-mails. no, they are planning on the energy tax to turn
easily evaporate a lot of presidential time or take up a lot of his time and energy and bottom line, if there is a threat of violence in the middle east once again. it could easily derail part of his second term agenda. a former bush white house advisor says like it or not, it is part of the job. >> the president has the responsibility for foreign policy. so, certainly, all eyes are on him and his administration to see what our reaction will be in keeping with our principles that israel is our closest ally in the region. and standing up for their defense. >> bottom line, when there is trouble in the middle east, folks tend to look here to the white house. and there are many examples in the course of history of events overtaking the plans of a white house team. gregg. >> gregg: on eight looker note. what do we know about how the president celebrated this thanksgiving? >> he made phone calls to 10 deployed service members. we are told that he thanked them for their service and sacrifice and also wanted to wish them and their families a very happy thanksgiving. the president had a ligh
the consulate and then what happened afterwards. and i think that's where we should be focusing our energy. i think that, look, if the president chooses to nominate her to be secretary of state, she's very well qualified. she should be able to receive a fair hearing from in the senate. and i hope she gets that because she's done a great service for this country over the course of the last four years. >> one thing i want to show to everybody is that a new cnn poll out shows a majority of americans believe that the white house misstatements were based on the best information that officials had at the time. 40% say there was no cover-up. so jonathan, does this meeting give the senators, you know, because of that? and we look at this poll, i mean how american people feel about this. does this meeting give the senators basically new ground to move forward on to try to discredit or try to claim that there's some type of deeper cover-up that went on prior to the election? >> well, looking at those results, it was -- it would seem to me that, you know, the senators took a big risk here because the ma
society, whether that's education or tax reform or energy reform to make it a more just and equitable society. >> as a tactical move it works onnerly re lly -- every level f. it works on bipartisan strategy, we all agree on this and start there. it takes something off the table before the harder stuff gets discussed. depriving as governor rendell the other side of its main leverage. so on all of those levels it works for him and it accomplishes what he wants to, which is to level the playing field in terms of income inequality. >> governor, we're going to have senator patty murray on the show in just a few minutes. in terms of getting this done, what do you think the president needs at this point? does he have all the arrows that he needs to get the tax cuts extended for the middle class and to expire for the upper income? >> he does if he's willing to use them. the part of this, the danger in this appeal, is that sometimes the president's going to have to go back to the same people that he's gining up here and saying you're going to take it a hit. the only way we will get this done.
